December Commencement Ceremony

Every Midyear commencement candidate will receive five (5) assigned seat tickets to the ceremony. The tickets are handed out with your academic attire, during academic attire distribution, in December.

Requests for additional tickets can be obtained by placing your name on a lottery list during robe distribution on Wednesday, December 13, or Thursday, December 14, between the hours of 10 a.m. and 8 p.m.

Students may request as many additional tickets as desired, BUT when the lottery is conducted, each recipient will only be awarded 2 tickets. Once everyone on the list has been awarded 2 tickets, and additional tickets remain, then the lottery will be conducted again using the same method of awarding 2 tickets.

Lottery winners will be notified via their Hofstra pride account beginning Friday, December 15, 2023, at 10 a.m. Lottery winners must respond within 2 hours to their email that they will take the tickets. If there is no response, the tickets will be awarded to the next person on the lottery list. All tickets must be picked up by the requesting student at the reception desk located in Room 112 Student Center by 5 p.m. on Friday, December 15, 2023.
